Project Budget: $102,000
Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Anne Goodchild
(This project is part of the Urban Freight Lab's Technical Assistance Program, where UFL contributes to the project by providing 1:1 match funds in terms of staff and/or research assistants to complete project tasks.) This project seeks to examine how micro-freight hubs can increase equity to services, benefit historically marginalized communities, and be joined to share micromobility options, social service agencies and minority businesses in North Fort Smith, Arkansas. The Urban Freight Lab will assist Frontier MPO and the City of Fort Smith by sharing knowledge and providing feedback as they develop a cohesive strategy to develop a micro-freight hub pilot project that leverages community resources. The goal is to create a cohesive strategy to develop a sound planning process, to grow collaborative relationships, to produce a sustainable business model, and to implement a micro-freight hub pilot project that leverages community resources.
